Posted on

vintage anatomy drawingYou won’t want to miss our Library Technicians and Assistants Interest Group (LTAIG) conference, next week. We have a great program, including a presentation by Karen Darby on how she inventoried Memorial University’s Health Sciences Library Historical Collection. From project plan to completed inventory, have you found secret treasures in your library? Ever wonder how to initiate a project you are interested in doing in the library? The Health Sciences Library historical collection provided both treasures and planning experience.

Our annual, one-day LTAIG conference will take place on Monday, November 7, and is free to current NLLA members. Its not too late to register online and join us for a fun and informative day of conversation and networking with your colleagues across the province and the country!

Special thanks to Erin Alcock, Angela Menchion, Kelly Hatch, Chris Young, Louise McGillis, Jane Matthews (Fox), and Patsy Bowers for sending in pics of their creative decorations!
